SUTL Enterprise, the Singapore-listed marina development, management and consultancy company, has won a contract for its second project in Indonesia. Located on Nirup Island, the new 112-berth integrated marina will operate as a ONE°15-branded facility and is SUTL’s second project in Indonesia.
When completed, Nirup Island will be the closest resort island to Singapore and the new marina will be a key part of the development. The marina will have berthing for superyachts but the exact size is not yet known. Work on the marina is expected to start this year with completion due in 12-18 months.
The 10-year contract was awarded by PT Tritunas Sinar Benua, an Indonesian company based in Batam. SUTL Enterprise will be consulting on the project and upon completion, the group will manage the marina and its clubhouse under the name ONE°15 Marina Nirup Island.
The group has also secured the first rights of refusal for the purchase of the ONE°15 Marina Nirup Island assets, should the property ever be up for sale in the future.
The new marina will be built according to the highest international standards. It will occupy a total area of 4.71ha and offer 112 berths including superyacht berthing and facilities. Additionally, there will be club house on the land-side, hospitality and leisure amenities, a sea sports centre, as well as fueling and bunkering services.
Visitors will also be able to charter luxury yachts for island hopping. Also situated on Nirup Island are hotels and water villas managed by international hotel chains, a seafood centre and various other attractions, facilities and amenities.
ONE°15 Marina Nirup Island will provide Custom Immigration Quarantine Procedures (CIQP) services for the convenience of boaters clearing in and out of Indonesia. The marina will also fall under SUTL Enterprise's ONE°15 Global Membership Scheme, which will give ONE°15 members access to members-only areas around the integrated marina club and discounts on services.
Commenting on the project, Arthur Tay, SUTL Enterprise executive director and CEO, said: "We are very excited about the latest addition to our network of marinas, which will enable us to offer our global members yet another destination to consider for their next getaway. ONE°15 Marina Nirup Island is especially close to our flagship ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove in Singapore and our upcoming marina in the Iskandar precinct of Johor, Malaysia – ONE°15 Puteri Harbour. This latest project brings us closer to our vision of establishing a string of world-class integrated marinas connecting boaters from one destination to the next as they sail the world."
ONE°15 Marina Nirup Island is the eighth marina for SUTL Enterprise and its second marina management contract in Indonesia. The first was the Indonesian Navy Club managed by ONE°15 in Jakarta. Other marinas include ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove, Singapore, which is the first marina owned by SUTL Enterprise, and ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina in Brooklyn, New York, which is the first ONE°15 marina outside Asia. In China, the Group has two marinas – the ONE°15 Marina Guishan and ONE°15 Marina Taihu Lake, Suzhou.
Closer to home, SUTL Enterprise is currently developing an integrated marina at Makham Bay in Phuket, Thailand. The group has incorporated a joint venture company with UEM Sunrise Berhad to develop a public marina, a private marina and a superyacht marina in Puteri Harbour of Iskandar Puteri in Iskandar Malaysia, Johor. All the projects will be branded ONE°15.
